In today’s fly tying video I show you how to tie a steelhead coachman, a great summer steelhead fly pattern developed by John Hazel.

This fly has all of the buggy qualities you typically love to see with summer steelhead patterns.  This is a slight variation on the original so have a look and let me know what you think.
